10 Oldest Person Lived On Earth


The Bible states in Genesis 6:3, "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years." But it seems like humans surpassed the age limit God has ordained for man. There are factors that explain why a person live fruitful years and why others pass away at a younger age. In this article, we will talk about the 10 oldest people who lived on earth.

The Bible recorded the oldest man on earth, Methuselah, who lived 969 years. But in this new age, the world’s average life expectancy is about 71.5 years, 68 years and 4 months for males and 72 years and 8 months for females. But compared to men, women typically live longer. Below are the top 10 oldest people who defied these numbers and considered as supercentenarians, or someone who has lived beyond their 110th birthday.

A majority of the women on this list are from Japan, who has the highest life expectancy in the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
